Mother's Day isn't just for celebrating the person who you call Mom. It's the perfect opportunity to show all of the women in your life some love.

My sister is the primary mother figure in my life. And even though she's just two years older than me, she's always there to give me motherly advice and an occasional (much-needed) dose of tough love. While she's not an actual mom, every Mother's Day I like to let her know just how much I appreciate everything she's done for me through the years. And there's no better way to do that than by surprising her with a gift that I know she'll love.

Whether your sister fills that motherly role in your life, is an actual mom herself or simply likes to act like your second mom, here are 26 perfect gifts to get her this Mother's Day.
